Community Initiatives

Cornwall Fire and Rescue Service recognises its responsibility in contributing towards working together to make Cornwall safer. We constantly develop strategies to provide fire safety messages throughout life.

In partnership with other Council departments and services, we support those in need from the communities we serve. We contribute directly towards Every Child Matters through educational and intervention packages that meet the needs of pre-school through to university students. 


We are committed to educating the community, children and young people in terms of fire safety, but also address issues such as anti social behaviour, which has an impact on community safety.

We deliver our work through an education agenda that includes the following schemes and projects below:

Community Fire Safety Advisors (CFSA's)

The CFSA's have been visiting schools in Cornwall since 2000 to give information and advice to children on the danger of fire in a fun but informative way.
